What is Data Virtualization?Data virtualization is a logical data layer that integrates all enterprise data siloed across the disparate systems, manages the unified data for centralized security and governance, and delivers it to business users in real time.
Logical data layer
Data virtualization provides a virtual approach to accessing, managing, and delivering data without replicating it in a physical repository.
Data virtualization integrates data siloed across all enterprise systems, regardless of data format, location, or latency.
Data virtualization provides a centralized secure layer to catalog, search, discover, and govern the unified data and its relationships.
Data virtualization delivers the integrated information in real time to the applications used by business users.
Solved – the Holistic Real-Time Data Challenge
Data virtualization presents a modern approach to data integration. Unlike ETL solutions, which replicate data, data virtualization leaves the data in source systems, simply exposing an integrated view of all the data to data consumers. As business users drill down into reports, data virtualization fetches the data in real time from the underlying source systems. Data virtualization proves that connecting to data is far superior to collecting it.
Through 2022, 60% of all organizations will implement data virtualization as one key delivery style in their data integration architecture."
